RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton, and Alan Carr search for a global superstar as all-star queens from around the world compete on RuPaul's Drag Race: UK Versus the World.

RuPaul's Drag Race has long been touted as the Olympics of drag, but it's about to go global for the first time on one stage in franchise herstory on RuPaul's Drag Race: UK Versus the World.

With the United Kingdom serving as the host region for the series' first-ever international all-stars edition, the new show will unite nine queens from global Drag Race seasons as they battle it out for the inaugural Global Drag Race Superstar title.
